Glenelg Public Art Masterplan

Glenelg Shire Council, 2014

Public Art is a chronile of public and cultural history. Public Art can project the identity of a place - it is one of the many voices of the public domain. Public art can be controversial and can challenge thoughts and perceptions. Public Art is located in the public domain, It belongs to the community. It can give a 'place' a point of difference.

Glenelg Public Art Master Plan - Definition of Public Art

Glenelg Shire is located in south west corner of Victoria. The shire is home to approximately 20,000 residents who reside within one city, two towns and eight villages. 

The Glenelg Public Art Masterplan identifies a range of key public art opportunities for Glenelg Shire. The Plan defines public art as it applies to the Glenelg Shire area. It presents design and project themes that are unique.

The locations and types of public art based on detailed research - including in-depth consultation, face to face interviews, historical and cultural studies and comprehensive studies of the locations involved. 

Foremost in value, the Masterplan will help Council, locals business, the community and individuals understand and recognise the cultural and financial inflows that follows the installation of well placed, well designed and meaningful public art. But perhaps even more so, the plan's implementation will build the self esteem of the Shire - boost the community's love for its towns and special places - and make the Glenelg Shire an even better place to live.
